Lea Michele talks breasts, rumors, and Cory Monteith: 'No one knew me better'
"I don't even remember a time when he wasn't my boyfriend," she says in the pages of the latest Marie Claire magazine, of which she graces the cover. "No one knows me better than Cory. No one knows what it's been like to go through this more than he does. Feeling like you have that net underneath you allows you to jump higher and go farther."
She adds that Monteith is highly supportive of her aspirations. "He makes me feel like I can do anything. For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world."
In the mag, Lea also addresses rumors that she's a diva on set. "I am a very outspoken person, and if something makes me uncomfortable, you will know that it makes be uncomfortable," she admits. "But that's as far as it goes. I can assure you that [diva rumors] aren't real. It's super-frustrating sometimes, and I used to fight back, but now I feel like, You can think what you want to think about me - that's OK. I have the most amazing fans, friends, and family members who have stood by me, and I know that my cast and crew really enjoy working with me. That's all that matters."
Assuring fans that any rumors of a feud between her and costar Kate Hudson are false, Michele says that she and Hudson shared a "human moment" after news hit the web that Hudson didn't like working with Michele. Apparently, Hudson called Michele and said, "I just heard about that, and it f**king sucks. I want you to know I think you're amazing."
The article goes on to note that Michele has moved past her obsession with her nose (which is mentioned in pretty much every article that's written about her) and now she's loving a different body part. "These babies are great. They are my prizewinners," she says, pointing to her breasts.
She has no problem showing off (or personifying) her boobs, which were on display every night while she starred in "Spring Awakening" on Broadway. "For a while they were out and about, showing off on Broadway every night, then they came to L.A. and were like, 'No one else looks like me here!' They were nervous to make their appearance but feel they've earned their place. So they asked if they could come out, and I was like, 'All right, you guys.' They definitely rose to the occasion, so I'm going to continue to give them more opportunities."
